Review of Matilda

Title: Matilda
Author: Roald Dahl
Rating: 5/5

I’ve only ever seen the movie before now, so when I found this in the secondhand shop I simply had to grab it. The movie really didn’t do it justice. But then, movies rarely do in my opinion.
Dahl’s descriptions are wonderful, especially when it gets to point where Matilda uses her ‘strong eyes’ to push over the newt-filled glass. Was that in the movie? It’s been so long since I’ve seen it.

I think I’ll keep this one on my shelf for when my daughter’s old enough to read it. Then we can love it together.
